PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa.— Cheers erupted in Punxsutawney, Pa., Saturday morning, as one of the most famous groundhogs made a prediction for an early spring.
Furry little Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this morning. Legend says if the groundhog doesn't see a shadow, winter will end early, and spring is just around the corner.
While Phil isn't the only groundhog prognosticator, the 1993 movie "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray brought the Pennsylvania rodent even more notoriety.
Organizers say about 20,000 people were expected this weekend, a larger-than-normal crowd because Groundhog Day falls on a weekend this year.
The Weather Channel's Jen Carfagno, a Pennsylvania native, has been reporting live from Punxsutawney this morning. Check out her photos - and more - below!
